What is really meant by 'development' in twenty-first-century post-apartheid South Africa? What are the challenges and complexities of real transformation in this context? The contributions in this title address the ways in which people in all sectors of South African society are confronting its development dilemmas: from the energy crisis, environmental sustainability and environmental justice to grassroots social movements, problems of policy implementation, land and agricultural reform and gender inequality. Written by leading academics and activists, this is an essential and illuminating in-depth study of the dilemmas facing post-apartheid South Africa, and the historical, political, economic and social context out of which a new democracy is being built. Collectively, the authors suggest that there is no easy way to attain development; it is a process, not an event, and is fraught with failures and loss, as well as gains."--P.  of cover.
